Okay, so it’s not quite so cool as being on a boat, but I’m in the air somewhere over southern Minnesota/South Dakota. And I’m on the internet. So, technology is sweet. I like living in the future.
I’ve had a rough couple of weeks, so having to travel to New York for work wasn’t something I was really looking forward to. I had to give a bunch of presentations and meet with a bunch of people I had never met before. That’s not necessarily my strongest suit, but from what I was told, I killed it. I hope I did. I also hope that I don’t have to do that again any time soon. Work trips are exhausting. I was exhausted before I left California.
But my trip wasn’t all bad. I got to spend some time with a friend who I had been missing quite a bit. I like hanging out with him because I feel like we learn from one another. Also, I feel like every time we see each other, we understand each other better. He’s an important friend to me.
So being on this flight is a little bit bittersweet. I am so looking forward to getting home and sleeping in my own bed, and showering in my own shower, and spending some time with Mr. Darcy. But I’m going to miss my friend.
However, I’ve realized that missing someone isn’t such a bad thing. It means that you have someone who you share good memories with. There’s someone who has mad you happy, and that you maybe even have loved.
Applicable to my life in more ways than just one right now.
